"City" piece on a feud over golf carts between two groups of residents on Great
"City" piece on a feud over golf carts between two groups of residents on Great Diamond Island. Many of the natives are resentful over the late-'80s influx of rich people who have taken up the north portion of the island, known as the Cove, a previously unoccupied area that had served as McKinley Fort, a military base, until 1945. Cove residents are parking their carts at the Village dock, called the State Pier, taking the spaces meant for villagers' golf carts, trucks and cars. It's against city law, state regulations and the private covenants agreed upon by the Cove developer for Cove residents to drive any kind of vehicle on Village streets. And villagers are not allowed to drive into the Cove. Despite three unproductive meetings already held, islanders will meet again sometime before Sept. 11 to try to resolve the issue.
